I have used the menu function "Project->Add To Project" to add another unit (somename.pas). How do I access the functions of this new unit from my other units (especially the one with the form)?

Hi lar_jens,

You must add the unit name to the Uses clause of the unit you want to "call" the functions.

You also (and it's better) to include a Uses clause just after the Implementation reserved word.

Example:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs, YOURUNIT;

type
.


OR

.
implementation

{$R *.DFM}

uses YOURUNIT;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
.

IHTH,
Itamar

P.S.: Any doubts, place a comment before rejecting the answer.

Unit1 can use YOURUNIT by doing like itamar said.

tip.
if Unit1 uses YOURUNIT then YOURUNIT can not use Unit1.

(it would create a cyclical dependency. neither unit can be compiled without the other one being present.)

Hi!
"if Unit1 uses YOURUNIT then YOURUNIT can not use Unit1." - This statement is only partly true.

If you need to use Unit1 in YourUnit then you should place the statement "uses Unit1;" in the implementation section of yourUnit.
